Kitchenaid Under Counter Ice Maker
Posted 28 June 2005 - 06:49 PM
The problem is, sometimes the ice sheet does not release from the freezing plate and a new cycle to create ice by recirculating water from the reservoir starts. When the circulating water tries to go over the freezer plate, it hits the old ice sheet still on the freezer plate and the water dribbles down into the ice bin. The water circulation pump continues to pump emptying the resivor because the water went down into the ice bin.
Does it sound like a common problem?
I've cleaned the unit several times....we don't have real hard water.
I'm assuming the freezing plate has a control that heats up or turns off allowing the ice sheet to melt slightly thus slide down to the grid. Could the problem be in the control of the freezing plate?
